Dragon's Beard Candy

Every time I see this candy being made I am fascinated with how sugar can in what seems like seconds, become these fine threads. It is then wrapped around peanuts and sesame seeds making a small sweet.
One of the Chinese restaurants in Soho often has a chef out the front on the street demonstrating this technique to passers by.

Hello, Mo. This is my first visit to you, and I really like your photos and descriptions. I'll be back.

I've never seen anything like this before. The sugar is as fine as hair. Amazing!

I've never seen this before and I lived in Blackpool where rock is made. It's a very strange sight.

One of my favourite things, though I don't have much of a sweet tooth! ;)
